Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser said the possibility of war with North Korea increases “every day” as the rogue nation said America was “begging for war”.

H.R. McMaster said that the possibility of war with North Korea increases every day the problem over its nuclear program isn’t solved.

“There are ways to address this problem short of armed conflict, but it is a race because he’s getting closer and closer and there’s not much time left.”

Last week, North Korea fired its highest-ever intercontinental ballistic missile, flying 1600km higher than during its first ICBM launch in July.

McMaster said that North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un’s nuclear ambitions are the gravest national security threat that America faces.

“The greatest immediate threat to the United States and to the world is the threat posed by the rogue regimen in North Korea and his continued efforts to develop a long-range nuclear capability,” he said.

Meanwhile, North Korea held mass celebrations for its latest successful long-range missile test, Pyongyang’s state media said Saturday, with the regimen accusing Washington of “begging for nuclear war” over planned military drills, AFP reports.

To celebrate the missile launch the ruling Workers Party’s official daily Rodong Sinmun covered its front page with colour photographs showing thousands of tightly packed soldiers and people applauding in Pyongyang’s Kim Il-Sung square, which was decorated with large portraits of the North’s late leaders.

“We heartily celebrate the successful test launch of the Hwasong-15 which showed Chosun (North Korea)’s power and greatness to the whole world”, read one banner held up by the crowd, referring to the missile.
